Chocolate oatmeal?! Is there really such a thing?
Oh my goodness, yes! In just 5 minutes, you can make this decadent-yet-good-for-you chocolate oatmeal for one. It’s like dessert for breakfast!
I don’t let chance dictate whether my day gets off to a good start. I’d rather make sure it’ll be a good day… by consuming chocolate first thing.
Sometimes, it’s in the form of my Chocolate Coconut Banana Bread.
Or any of my Healthy Chocolate Breakfast Recipes.
But often, it simply means mixing a spoonful of chocolate peanut butter into my morning oatmeal, or cutting a big hunk off a 100% Dagoba chocolate bar to eat on the side of whatever breakfast I might be having. It’s not possible to eat chocolate and frown at the same time.
Really, it’s not. Try it!
Am I wrong? Can you do it?
Well, then at least I got you to eat some chocolate!
What’s your favorite way to eat oatmeal? Is there a specific way you always prepare it?
Or maybe you don’t like oatmeal at all? For inspiration, here are some of my favorites:
